Recently a question on twitter caught my attention:

    “How do you stay on task?

    It’s a good question.

    For people who procrastinate.

    For people who are prone to distraction.

    For people with a lot of choice.

    For people who are overwhelmed.

    Here’s the verbatim response I gave on twitter:

  • 1: Use Pomodoro technique.
  • 2: Ensure I’ve the necessary resources needed – time, energy, information & tools.
  • 3: Ensure notifications are turned off.
  • When I’m working with people, I’d add a 4th – ensure that people know not to interrupt me.

    How do you stay on task? The more you do, the more you’ll accomplish!
